Year 11 trip to Thackray Museum

In October 2017, the History department took a group of year 11 to the Thackray medical Museum in Leeds.

Thackray Medical Museum provided a dramatic backdrop to year 11’s study of medicine, with insight into significant individuals, public health, science and technology, anaesthetics, antiseptics and other factors involved in the development of medicine.

Year 11 had a very engaging, interactive and ‘gory’ experience within Thackray, leaving with a deeper understanding to be applied to their own study of medicine, and also with a renewed appreciation for modern medical methods!

Definitely a test for the faint hearted (and those who had just had lunch)
